Are the radiator cooling fans coming on? HTH. -Jim


the cooling fans are cycling like they are supposed to. problem only seems to be at idle.

Compressor or compressor clutch. If it is the clutch, you would be able to look in the engine bay and know if it is engaging and turning the compressor while idling. If it is, then it is your compressor wearing out.
